Here's the thing about summer hairstyles: Unless they're fast, easy, and sweatproof, no one's wearing them. That's why I've made it my personal mission to make sure the summer 2020 hair trends I'm eyeing this year are actually practical (read: something that gets your hair off your neck without looking like your boring, sweaty-ass gym ponytail). Ahead, I rounded up 10 celebrity-inspired haircuts, styles, and colors you'll want to try immediately. PS: I'm talking Hailey Bieber, Zendaya, Dua Lipa, and more, so you know they're good.
